Sunday Favorites... Revisiting "The Road"...


This post was originally published on 06/25/08. I am an avid reader... though due to an eye condition, much of my reading is now listening to audio books...and I have an ever growing "to read" list that I update weekly. Rarely do I "reread" something, just because I don't have the time... maybe after retirement gets here... but then that's another story... "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy is one of those rare books that I have read twice... (read once, listened once...) If you haven't had the chance, this book is well worth the read...
Please visit Chari at Happy to Design on Sunday Morning for more Sunday Favorites...


If you haven't read "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy, I highly recommend that you do. I've now read it twice, which is rare for me. I have so many books on my reading list that I keep it in a spreadsheet - so I really don't have the time to re-read something, except, perhaps, a classic read from long ago. "The Road" is a masterpiece of writing; a tale of a post-apocalyptic world, and the love of a father and son as they travel "The Road". It's interesting, McCarthy's vision of this world; and heart wrenching - the complete and utter love and devotion that the father has for the son and vice-versa.

Well worth the read... and apparently a second read. Oh, and did I mention that this is a Pulitzer Prize winning novel.

Working steady to keep my brain from turning to mush... down here in... French Lique.

I always love a book recommendation. I will hunt this one down and give it a read. I read very quickly but often get 3/4 of the way through a book and then quit.

I will have to look this book up and read it, you really grabbed my attention when you said it was about the love of a Father and Son for each other.
I am not a big reader but will take time to read a book that has been highly recommended.

Thank you for the HOT tip! I like books like this and I'll take it to Cancun with me this year.
Now I'm going to scroll down and take another look at that perfectly fried okra!

Thanks Dixie for coming by to visit GrannyMountain today! I've got a "band-aid" on my blog right now after having a major meltdown last week when I lost all my pictures. Oh well, makes life interesting when the rug gets pulled out from under you!

Thanks for the recommendation. I always have a book going. One of my friends and I try not to buy the same book so that we can swap. LBeau has been after me to get a Kindle but I've told him that would not work since I swap books with Janice. Also, there's just something about holding the real thing.
